#76 Role of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography in the differential diagnosis of the pancreatic and hepatic lesions
Introduction: Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) is a new promising tool for the characterization of pancreatic lesions. This technique allows for highlighting the micro-vascularization of a lesion, especially with the use of second generation contrast media, characterized by harmonic responses at low acoustic pressures. Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PET)s were reported to have a peculiar behavior at CEUS, consisting of a higher enhancement compared to normal pancreas in the arterial phase and a rapid washout.

#199 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) v. Endoscopic Ultrasonography (EUS) for the Detection of =10-mm Pancreatic Tumors in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1). A GTE Study
Introduction: In MEN1, the main risk factor of metastases is pancreatic tumor size. We and others recommend limiting surgery to pancreatic tumors >20 mm or growing based on their size measured with EUS.

#12 Chromogranin A as a predictor of progression, regression or stable disease in ileo-cecal (midgut) carcinoid tumors
Introduction: A general characteristic for NETs is their expression of certain proteins, such as chromogranin A (CgA), which is released from the dense core vesicles of NE cells, occasionally together with cell specific hormones, such as gastrin and serotonin. Plasma CgA seems to be closely related to tumor burden of intestinal carcinoid tumors in humans.

#421 Pelvic Carcinoid Tumor Recurrence Treated by Laparosocopic Ultrasonography Guided Laparoscopic Resection
Introduction: Minute retroperitoneal carcinoid tumor recurrences may be difficult to locate during surgery. A laparoscopic approach to re-resection is further hampered by the lack of tactile sense. Laparoscopic Ultrasonography (LUS) is a minimally invasive method which may compensate for the lack of palpation during laparoscopic surgery, and LUS allows for an evaluation of lesions beneath the visible surfaces. LUS is used in the pretherapeutic staging of upper GI tract cancer, and LUS can identify - and if necessary also biopsy - lesions less than 10 mm in diameter.

#724 Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasonography (CEUS) Reliably Predicts Tumor Progression in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) exhibit a typical vascular pattern in the arterial phase on CEUS. The role of CEUS in the prognostic evaluation of pancreatic NET (pNET) has been poorly investigated.

#725 Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasonography (CEUS) Predicts the Effectiveness of Anti-Angiogenic Therapies in Patients with Liver Metastases from Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Liver metastases (LM) from neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) exhibit a typical hypervascular pattern in the arterial phase on CEUS, allowing for a differential diagnosis between NET and non-NET LM. Medical therapy includes agents acting on angiogenesis and vascularization which may result in a change in CEUS findings.

#272 Plasma Chromogranin A in Patients with MEN I and Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors
Introduction: Circulating chromogranin A(CgA) is considered a useful marker for gastroenteropancreatic endocrine tumors. Data on its pattern in MEN-1 patients with non-functioning pancreatic tumors(NFPT) are scant.

#235 Robot-assisted Distal Pancreatectomy for Insulinoma. A Case Report
Introduction: A literature review on laparoscopic pancreatic resection was conducted with emphasis on its applicability and safety. The outcome of the procedures for pancreatic insulinoma is similar to open surgery.
